Motorized Blinds for Your Home in Milton


As smart technology makes our homes better, blinds have not been left behind. Adding motors and app control to all different kinds of blinds and shades offers many practical benefits for homeowners. Your blinds can open and shut through remote control, app control, voice control, or even automatically based on your schedule. But there’s more to it than that. If you want to take out the guesswork, you can talk to one of our team members about an in-home consultation so you can see exactly what your options will look like in your home. If you want to learn more first, you can read on to see how to get the right motorized roller shades for you.


  1. Choose Your Motor


When you’re choosing a motor for your blinds, you want to choose one that is the right size, so it isn’t over or underpowered. It is best to choose a motor that operates quietly, so as not to disturb you when it rolls up or down, especially if it may do so automatically. Of course, you also want motors that work simply and efficiently and will have a long service life.

At Milton Blinds we offer two motors that fit the bill: the Sonesse®30and the Roll Up Wired™ R28 WT. The main difference between the two is their size, where the Sonesse®30 is for larger blinds or shades than the other option. Both are still small, which means they are simple to conceal from view.


  1. Remote or Smart Technology?

You have three options when it comes to the control mechanism for your blinds:

  • Wall control: Think of this as a thermostat for your blinds. With the simple push of a button on your wall, you can control your window dressings.
  • Remote: These are remotes for your motorized blinds. They are more convenient, except that you might lose the remote.
  • Smart tech: Smart blinds are, of course, the pinnacle of convenience for blind control. You can use an app or even voice control to move your blinds.


  1. Style and Materials for Blinds

Of course, you should also make your decision about what kind of window dressing you want to pair with your motorization. Choose a general type and then narrow down your material and style options until you have a blind or shade that you love. We can help you make the decision, explain our full inventory, and assess how your blind choice might work with the style of your home or the specific room they will be installed.
